* [[SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome Crowning Moment Of Awesome]]:
** Oliver May singlehandedly wipes out a substantive portion of Earth's attack force in the Battle of A Baoa Qu at the end of ''Apocalypse'', to the extent that the Federation units thought he was the Red Comet (in no small part due to the color of the Big Rang).
** Major Sonnen and the Hildorfr singlehandedly kill half a dozen Zakus and a few Type 61's.
** Major Jean Luc Duvall's chase with the GM team at the end of ''Hidden One Year War''.
** Episode 1 of ''Gravity Front'' had Ben Barberry kill a Zaku alone, with a missile and a pothole.
** Herman Yandell and Elmer Snell's showdown in episode 2 of ''Gravity Front''.
** The Suicide Charge of the Guntank Team in episode 3 of ''Gravity Front''.
** Suffice to say, each episode contains at least one for the titular machine.
* [[SugarWiki/AwesomeMusic Crowning Music Of Awesome]]: There's at least one example in each episode, mainly the music that plays during the Crowning Moment Of Awesome.
* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotSymbolic: Shinigami, full stop. They thought they had to make up for the lack of heavy handed Newtype symbolism.
